the president have on that issue. basically his position was, we're raising the debt ceiling whether congress wants to or not. i'm not negotiating with them on it. i'm not following what speaker boehner said is the boehner rule of for every dollar we increase the debt limit there will be a spending cut and i'm not going to let them put a gun at the heads of american people because in his terms, they refuse to pay the bills that they've agreed to pay and when asked about the fact that he himself voted against raising the debt limit back in 2006 when he was a senator he seemed to say that was somehow different than this because-- i'm not sure why. but it's somehow different than this. your thoughts? >> my thoughts, well, to begin with, the president absolutely no sense of irony about his record history or, if you will, the particular, i think, extraordinary contradiction in his career which has been -- it was only just over six years ago that as a u.s. senator he was voting against the debt ceiling increase and now as a president, just about four years from having assumed office, he will have a

to breach the debt ceiling then we'll find out whether he really won't negotiate at all or whether there's a some sort of fig leaf separation between spending cut negotiations and debt ceiling negotiations. but he was very clear and definitive here and i think it will make it more difficult than it was before this news conference for him to back away from the position that he just took. >> i'm sure you saw the politico report this morning suggesting that several house republicans are floating the idea internally that a shutdown of the government may not be such a bad thing. is that rhetoric on the other side or how real is that? >> well, there's absolutely nothing new in that. republicans have made clear that they're willing to do that for quite some time. and, the calculation of the administration is that that will not end well for republicans. republicans were hurt as a party by the 2011 showdown over the debt ceiling. republicans were hurt as a party by the 1995 government shutdown that was engineered by newt gingrich and ultimately that helped bill clinton win a second term. i think

by focusing on the debt ceiling fight is the president's sort of holding out a shiny object for the press to capture attention? >> well, look, i think whether, i think you're right that there's a lot of pitfalls out there for the president, things we haven't thought of, foreign policy crises yet to come and an economy that has been sluggish. a couple of things to realize. first of all the economy has not been in that great a shape and the president was reelected nonetheless. while eventually i think voters might get fed up with his economic stewardship, they might not. secondly whether the president wants to hold up shiny objects for the press, we know the debt ceiling fight will come to a head. we know it will be a major clash. the president wants to maintain upper hand here. not so much what you or i might think is really going on. it is what voters think is going on. how they see things. he wants to maintain his image at a reasonable, rational guy versus a, band of republicans he wants to faint as extreme, out of touch and unreasonable. jon: weill look for him to, at that conversation
